Some Interesting Interpreting & Translation Projects Completed in August

Recently American Language Services was involved in numerous language related projects. One of the projects was for Lake Research Partners; it was a transcription project. We helped them in transcribing a focus group video from Urdu to English.

In addition to that, another project we completed was for the World Justice Project; we translated a questionnaire document related to the General Population Poll of 2018 from English to Arabic, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese and Vietnamese. We translated another questionnaire document about CFPB Financial Well-Being Scale for National CAPACD from English to Thai, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified), Hindi, and Korean. Another interesting project we completed was an Interpreting project for Paul Hastings, Los Angeles. We provided them with the interpreting service of one of the uncommon languages called Shanghainese. The project was held in multiple locations, and we were able to provide them with seamless service.

All the projects went very well. Working with so many distinctive projects in such a short period of time was both interesting and rewarding. At American Language Services, in addition to completing all the projects with perfection, we love to do those memorable summer time activities, to help us keep ourselves cool.
